SoCal HPLM Group

January 2009 witnessed the inauguration of the "Southern California History and Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics Group". This group provides a forum for discussing new work in the philosophy of logic and mathematics, as approached from a historically informed perspective. Given the interests and expertise of the initial members (see below), the primary focus will be on the period from Kant to the present and on works in early analytic philosophy, phenomenology, and neo-Kantianism. But this is not meant in any exclusive sense, i.e., we are open to considering other periods, schools, and thinkers as well.

Initial members:
